That is the policy decision.
Yesterday, I noted that valley cities in Ca were most impacted with radiation. Those valley cities are where the majority of Ca’s agricultural crops are grown (I’m a native Californian).
Same with Yuma AZ.
The decision has been made to avoid panicking populations and food scarcities by allowing us to eat radiation-laden food, drink radiation-laden water, inhale radiation-laden air.
THE QUESTION IS WILL THEY TEST AT ALL TO PROTECT US FROM THE MOST CONTAMINATED PRODUCTS?
This summer I found a document from the state of Alaska saying 2000 CPM beta were action levels. Compare that with 3x background for emergency responders according to EPA
State of Alaska
Action intervention levels are no doubt being raised, as illustrated by the ridiculous level of 2000 cpm beta action level for the State of Alaska.
Early in the disaster I spoke to our state's radiological protection officer and he said that the action intervention level for air quality was 1000cpm beta.
Alaska's is now twice that.
